Harold Locke has returned >from Temple, Texas, where she spending several 1 days age starting cred to 72. Under the new rule starting Jan. if youre between 65 and. 72, whether you can continue to earn money and draw benefits depends in (A) the amount of your earn- ngs and (B) the number of months you work. . This is what that me and You can earn up to $1,200 a year and still collect full social security ' benefit !or every month of that year. .Example: John Jones, earning S100 a month, gets a total salary of 51,200 in 1955. .He receives his !u)l social security benefit every month of 1055 because he did not earn more than $1,200 .that year. But — If you work every month of .the year, earning more than $80 each month and winding up with more than $1,200 at the years end, you .lose a months social security benefit for each additional $80, or any part -of it, that you earn in S'J ' '.'- ."." Example: Tom Smith,, working every month, earns $1,205 'in 1935. For 11 months he earns .$100 a month. One month he 'earns $105. He loses his social security benefit for thnt one month in *' which he, earned $105, . ...- . .-,'. Another example: Bill Kelly, working overy month and oarriing more than $80 each mornllv winds up at the end of 1955 win $1,440. That $1,440, is $240 more than the $1,200 exemption.' That. : $240 represents three times $80'. Kelly loses his social security benefit for 3 of the 12 months.

"Here If a boy phones on Thursday to ask a girl for a date on Saturday, she tells him no—whether she really already has another date or not. She wants to impress liivri how popular she is. So she tyould rather stay home than let him know she isn't dated up two Weeks in advance. 'in Israel we don't have So many telephones. Dating is much more casual.

Wathbufn Aluminum Pipe Boom Gives Clue (o the Growth of Irrigation Farmers of southwest Arkansas l be interested in the growth CS irrigation' in recent years as reported in a news roundup by Winston C. Fournier in the September 2 issue of Wall Street Journal. Mr. Fournier tells of a demonstration near Menf'ro, southeast Missouri, where giant portable rotating sprinklers beat the drouth and mada a record corn crop. The Bphinklers, an over-size version of the one in the front yard, were with water pumped out of a iek through 20-foot lengths of aluminum pipe. The whole business is portable — and the demonstration tract on whle^h it was. used produced 75 to 80 bushels of corn per acre. Mr. Fournier's story goes on to tell of the boom in aluminum irrigation pipe, manufactured Chiefly by Aluminum Company ol America and Reynolds Metals cjjnpany. Jointly they figure to sell 32 to 34 million pounds of pipe this year against 27.7 million in 1953 — and only 1.3 million in 1946, first year the pipe was put on the market. Ordinarily we think of irrigation as it is practiced in the Stuttgart rice fields and in the citrus orchards and vegetable fields of the arid West — flat fields surrounded by a low levy and periodically flooded with water. This won't work on unlcvel ground. And now overhead sprinklers and pbrtable pipe arc taking the day. Mr. Fournier says the aluminum pipe was' put on the market only in 194G — but I realize now that back I in 1940 I saw a preliminary test of' this kind of irrigation. Driving home from Mexico City in March 1940 I turned east .at Monterrey, Bossed the Rio Grande at Reynosaj — and came up through the Rio Grande valley irrigated district ol Texas. In the north end of. the district, en route to Houston, I saw what appeared to be aluminum pipe strung across a field of vegetables and spraying water. But the sprinkling was fixed, as I recall — the giant whirling sprinkler is a new development. mentioned this first overhead ation system in this column ori"my return home i— and its application to oiir ' home area escaped me, 'of course. We hadn't then had a run of consecutive dry years. There was the 1930 drouth disaster, but it was considered to .be an exception — comparable t'o only one other, back in the 1880's. Now we have an agriculture which demands more water than gotton, but the rainfall is progres- Vtlvely less. Irrigation,— especially the overhead type — is definitely the answer in our rolling country. And what is being done in Missouri and Oklahoma and Texas can be done in Arkansas, expensive though it be. But irrigation, invokes other problems besides the production and purchase of portable aluminum pipe. There is the problem of water i-ights. One man obviously can't IJJSke all the water out of a creek which also serves neighbors down the stream. You have to have some equitable participating plan. , And, most important, you have to have somewhere in the general area a much larger supply of stored water than our section now has. Our rivers arc the answer. We arc relatively close to three: Red, Little, and Little Missouri. Dams on these •{^fcould give sufficient storage from winter and spring to see us through any summer.

This estimate Is B4!!.000 bales less than last month's forecast of 12,680,000 bales. It compares also with last year's crop of 16,465,000 bales and with the tcn-yenr (184352) average of 12,448,000 bales. Under a control program embracing planting allotments and marketing quptas, the department had sought to limit production to about 12 million bales. Supplementing this year's production is a carryover stock of about 9,600,000 bales from previous crops. It was this large reserve supply that invoked tho • production controls meastujes which will be continued next year' if approved by growers voting in n referendum later in the fall. Officials have forecast market demands for cotton from this year's supr.ly at 13.700,000 bales, or about 1,300,000 bales more than from last year's supply. The department seid the yield of cotton was expected to average compared With 324.2 last year and 25 pounds per harvested acre compared with.324.2 last year and 272.1 for the ten-year average. The condition oE the crop as of Sept. 1 was reported at 69 per cent of average compared with 76 per cent a year ago and 72 per cent for the ten-year average. The department estimated that 3.4 per cent of the acreage in cultivation on , July 1 will be abandoned for harvest. This would leave 19,285,000 acres for harvest. In an accompanying report, the Census Bureau said 1,693,749 running bales from the 1954 crop had v been ginned prior 'to Sept. 1 compared with 1,165,818 to the same date last year and 1,458,384 two years ago. gM[^ • H| M' >';, ' Red Invasio _ ," i ' '•,"*•<£ Bases Again by Nationali W ...._.
